You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory – Johnny Thunders

July 10, 2008

It doesn’t pay to try.
All the smart boys know why.
It doesn’t mean I didn’t try.
I just never know why.

Feel so cold and all alone.
Cause baby, you’re not at home.
And when I moan,
big deal, I’m still alone.

Feel so restless, I am.
Beat my head against a pole.
Try to knock some sense
down in my bones.

And even though they don’t show
the scars are so old.
And when they go
They let you know

You can’t put your arms around a memory.
You can’t put your arms around a memory.
You can’t put your arms around a memory.
Don’t try.
Don’t try.

You’re just a bastard kid.
You got no name.
Cause you’re living with me
we’re one and the same.

And even though they don’t show
the scars are so old.
And when they go
they let you know

You can’t put your arms around a memory.
You can’t put your arms around a memory.
You can’t put your arms around a memory.
Don’t try.
Don’t try.

You can’t put your arms around a memory.
You can’t put your arms around a memory.
You can’t put your arms around a memory.
Don’t try.
Don’t try.
